Fusion: You are so very loved.






Hello and Happy Friday Eve!

This has been a whirlwind week for me and the fun keeps on going!  We have a brand new Fusion Card Challenge for you:

 PROCEDURES:

1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

I love BOTH the inspiration and the sketch, how about you?!  Sometimes I surprise myself with the end result of my project.  I'm such a nautical fan that initially I thought I would combine the two and do a nautical card, then I gravitated towards a non-traditional graduation card:

paper:  echo park/paper & glue  stamps:  verve/words of wisdom  ink:  memento tuxedo  other:  project life card, Lifestyle crafts glasses die, black craft foam

I recently picked up the Echo Park Paper & Glue paper pad.  It's a great collection of bright colors but what drew me to it were the glasses...love those.

Here's the interior of the card, love the Verve Words of Wisdom set:


This is when I tell you that my boy graduates in a week...a week.  I can't begin to tell you how quickly time has flown by (eyes welling up).  I'm such a proud Momma...this boy of mine has managed to participate in many clubs, enrolling in tons of AP level courses, earning an AP Scholar with Distinction...I am truly blessed with two beautiful intelligent kids.  Hands down, being their Momma has been and will always be the highlight of my life.

My boy will be leaving for New York in late August and I couldn't be more thrilled for him.  He was meant to go to school in NYC and I know that he'll truly shine. 


Don't forget that tomorrow is the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We have 34 Sponsors and it is guaranteed to be tons of fun!!!!

Make sure you check out the Fusion Design Team!

Oh, Amy, what an exciting time for you AND your boy! I was just lamenting my eldest turning 13 this year. She still has a few months of non-teenagerhood to go, but I'm starting to mourn my baby! I'm also celebrating her move into the next phase, it's so exciting for her. Your card is perfect. I love it!
